Network Initiative

English Learners Collaborative

The purpose of the English Learners (EL) Advisory Board is to strengthen the collaboration between the EL office and community partners serving our international families. Community partners have strong connections with families and students, and MNPS’s goal is to leverage that connection to ensure that families know their rights, are aware of available resources and programs, and understand the education and support their child is receiving in school. Community partners are also able to share the needs they see in the communities they serve to inform the MNPS EL Office’s programming and initiatives.
